Trying to dress for a new season is always challenging, but throw a baby bump into the mix and things just got that bit more difficult. Not only are you navigating a new season, but you’re likely to not have any winter wear that fits, or actually looks good with the bump.
Whilst maternity wear can be somewhat of a minefield, it’s an opportunity to refresh your wardrobe for the winter. Plus, there are some gorgeous maternity outfit ideas to help you and bump look just as amazing! Here are 9 winter maternity outfit ideas that we think you’ll love!
1.Long Dresses With A Cropped Jacket
Maxi dresses that skim your bump are the ultimate basic for dressing a bump. They usually have stretchy material so are super comfy too, and it means there is less to worry about when you’re putting an outfit together. Add a cropped jacket and a scarf can help to break up the bump, whilst creating further visual interest to the outfit.
This lady has nailed this look, opting for a pair of flats for a really casual, and comfy winter look.
2. Oversized Jumper With Leggings
Name a time when an oversized jumper has not been a go to look? Even for maternity wear, this look is still perfect. Grab a cosy, winter oversized knit – you might get away with non maternity and just size up for this. Add over the top of leggings for a neat look. We love how this lady has teamed it with a pair of knee high boots. Fact – you can STILL look glamorous in maternity wear!
3. Oversized & Layered
We adore this look from Sinead. She continued to emulate her style whilst dressing for her new body and by teaming together a mixture of layers she’s created some gorgeous maternity styles for winter. Opt for loose, flared elasticated trousers for comfort with an oversized jumper or t-shirt. Finish off with a winter coat, gorgeous scarf and some flats.
4. Layered Jacket
Remember, that when it comes to maternity winterwear you can still take inspiration from your non bump wardrobe and reinvent it for maternity wear. This is such an easy and simple outfit to throw together. Opt for some straight leg jeans with a striped or plain t-shirt (stripes add further interest though) and layer with a shirt jacket or shacket to finish the look. Simple, and snug for bump too.
5. Midi Skirts
Midi skirts have had a moment for the last few years and still remain such a comfortable and fashionable piece. We adore this look. Source a long sleeve jumper and team with a pleated midi skirt which comes just above the bump. Top it off with a pair of flats or converse. The best thing about this look is that it can be taken from casual to evening wear very easily by swapping out tops, jackets and shoes.
6. Jumper Knit Dress & Knee High Boots
Glamorous, stylish and comfy. This is one of the easiest looks to throw on and you’ve instantly nailed a stylish maternity winter wear outfit. There are so many roll neck jumper knit dresses on the market, pair with knee high boots – flat or heeled. Add a cross body bag and oversized coat if you need the extra warmth.
The only time you can get away with a pair of dungarees that doesn’t make you look like a painter decorator. This casual look is perfect for winter wear and super easy to throw together. Opt for some basic long sleeve tops in a few different colours and a good pair of dungarees, then the look can easily be refreshed with different tops throughout the winter. Layer with a jumper for even more warmth.
8. Long length Cardigan
This outfit has everything, glamour, style and comfort! We adore the bump hugging top and trousers which flare out whilst the long length cardigan is in proportion with the outfit and bump. This would make a gorgeous evening outfit for winterwear and Christmas parties with a bump.
9. Roll Neck Jumpers
Finishing it off with an absolute winter wear classic, the turtleneck jumper. This iconic piece of knitwear will keep bump cosy and secure, whilst it looks amazing with a pair of straight leg or skinny jeans. Finish off with an oversized winter coat and a scarf to break up the outfit and outline of the bump. Wear with some boots or flats for the ultimate maternity winter look.
Whilst maternity wear and dressing a new body can feel alien, there is so many options out there. If you start to feel overwhelmed take a step back. Our greatest advice is to create a Pinterest board to collect images of winter maternity wear that you absolutely love. Then break it down into the pieces you need to buy, and go shopping. Being armed with a list and ideas will help you to feel calm and in control of dressing your new bump!
